Destroy! Rock Music's
Satanic Message
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Recently NBC Dateline had a story about two average American teenagers who murdered and cut up a friend, put the body parts in a garbage bag and hid it in a drain sewer. (Dateline Videos "It began as a Teen Drama")
The announcer, the parents and the audience shook their heads and asked: "How could they do this?"
I was dumbfounded too. After watching a ten-hour 4-DVD presentation on the Satanic agenda infusing much youth music, I have the answer. Incredible and bizarre as it sounds, the younger generation is being inducted into Satanism. It is being taught to murder, rape and hate society in general, and especially Christians and Christianity.
Entitled "They Sold their Soul for Rock and Roll" the DVD makes a convincing case that espousing Satanism is the price of success in the music industry. Starting with the roots of Rock and Roll, down to Heavy Metal, Goth, Grunge and Rap, this documentary shows that many famous musicians actually see themselves as evangelists for Satan and say they derive their power from him. They have /literally/ sold their souls to the devil, and their primary goal is to make us do the same. The MTV network is the handmaiden of this agenda.
Produced by "Fight the Good Fight Ministry" the DVD analyzes the lyrics, interviews and album art of more than sixty superstars. The consistent espousal of the ideas of Satanists Aleister Crowley, Anton LaVey (Howard Levey) and Madame Blavatsky, and their inclusion in the album art, along with familiar Satanic imagery, is part of a deliberate elite agenda. The list of artists exposed includes the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Led Zepplin, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Manson and Eminem. You can see excerpts on line. I recommend you watch Cobain, Manson and Eminem.
This excerpt from "DEMONS" by Rigor Mortis is typical of heavy metal.
"We come bursting through your bodies
Rape your helpless soul
Transform you into a creature
Merciless and cold
We force you to kill your brother
Eat his blood and brain
Shredding flesh and sucking bone
Till everyone's insane
We are pestilent and contaminate
The world Demonic legions prevail"
(from "Satanic Roots of Rock and Roll" by Jack Phau)
The DVD explains how music is the most effective means of brainwashing and mind control, especially if the audience thinks it's listening to spontaneous creative expression. The DVD traces the Satanic message "Do as thou wilt" (formerly "do your own thing") in many songs advocating free sex, drugs, violence, murder and mayhem. You are God! You can do anything you want! There is no moral order based on universal Love. The rock concert scenes are chillingly reminiscent of the Nazi Nuremberg Rally.
The unabashed espousal of evil raises the question: why are the world's biggest corporations purveying this poison? Why is tainted spinach intercepted, yet this toxic filth is actually pumped into the minds and souls of millions of unsuspecting children?
The Illuminati's central banking cartel controls these corporations. Its aim is "revolution" i.e. "communism" ­ banker world dictatorship and the destruction of Western Civilization (i.e. the four pillars of our strength and identity: religion, nation, family and race.) They need to translate their control of our government's credit (ability to print money) into total control using their cultural and political puppets. This is why opposition to socially destructive elements (e.g. promoting homosexuality to straights) often is NOT tolerated, but vicious hatred against Christians and society in general is not only acceptable, but actually bankrolled.
"Christianity is our only real enemy since all the political and economic phenomena of the bourgeois states are only its consequences," a member of the Illuminati explained.
The DVD reveals that the Columbine shooters knew the lyrics of Satanist bands by heart, and/ literally/ were acting out these instructions. They deliberately targeted Christian students but the term "hate crime" doesn't apply to Christians.
Cassie Bernall was asked to reject God to spare her life. She refused. She is a Saint but there is little mention of her in the Illuminati media.
"How could this happen?" Tom Brokaw intoned. With one hand, the mass media pretends to be shocked, and with the other hand it teaches children to kill.
Similarly, media and government pretend to stamp out child predators while at the same time promoting rock groups that encourage children to have sex. The DVD shows a "Spice Girl" serenading a six-year-old with a song advocating self-abandonment. It shows 14-year-old teenage girls who look like hookers admitting that group sex orgies are commonplace.
Reaction to this DVD often is shock and denial. There is a tendency to dismiss it as the overzealous work of Christian fundamentalists. Indeed, the makers are too quick to reject Eastern religions as satanic and they fail to see how some performers like Elvis Presley might have been honest dupes with good intentions. If you're not a Christian, I urge you to overlook the sermonizing (although I personally think it is pertinent.) The overall message cannot be denied and should not be ignored.
The Illuminati started off innocently in the fifties and sixties, urging the young to defy authority and indulge their libido. Little did we suspect that "Sargeant Pepper" referred to the Satanist and MI-6 Agent Aleister Crowley and that the Beatles' label EMI stands for "Electrical and Mechanical Instruments" one of Britain's largest war contractors.
Little did we know the music industry is controlled by corporations using the mob, and many performers are brainwashed and drugged, and live in fear. Little did we suspect that their rebellious message advanced the Illuminati's "divide and rule" strategy. Or that their prescriptions for living would make us dysfunctional and ruin our lives.
To a large extent, our lives are shaped by controlled popular culture and history.We are fed our ideas and beliefs instead of using common sense and first-hand experience. We are someone else's lab experiment. The "someone else" is a disciple of Satan who has hijacked humanity.
An argument can be made for some aspects of the "Sexual Liberation" and "New Age" movements but *the bottom line* is they were designed to dilute and undermine Christianity and serve as an intermediary step to a "Clockwork Orange" society ( "Grand Theft Auto" meets "Brave New World.")
No wonder we see so many young people wondering around looking like zombies. What is the pernicious message constantly whispered in their ear? Is the Illuminati breeding terrorists in our midst, but real ones this time ?
Society cannot eschew God and pretend to be neutral and secular. God is synonymous with universal spiritual ideals: truth, love and justice. You cannot turn off the Light without being consumed by Darkness. Don't be fooled. People who remove the Ten Commandments from public life are merely making room for golden calves and sacrificial altars.
The "Open Conspiracy" is a cancer at the heart of Western Society and it is reaching a critical stage. Do we have the "eyes to see and the ears to hear?" The source of this cancer's power is the private central banking cartel. Do we have the courage to tackle it?

Rock Music covers a very broad spectrum of music! Not all rock music, in fact MOST rock music, is not in any way related to Satanic Rock. Satanic Rock is unique and something unto itself, it's even unique to "heavy metal" now days.
Just as it would be improper to say "Drunk! - Country Music's Alcoholic Message" just because about 30% of country music is about getting or being drunk.
I've been watching this hooplah for many years. There IS a contingent of musicians in heavy metal which do use the Satanic to sell their albums, mostly because it's wild, spooky and kids love it. They don't take it seriously, sad, though that may be. The Marylin Mansons are few and far between.
But to indict all of Rock music? That's just flatheaded nonsense and so long as Christians keep doing this they will be tuned out (and rightly so) by thinking people who can easily discern this is just prejudiced. As stupid as suggesting Elvis' dancing would catapult teen girls into sexual frenzies they couldn't control. Never happened. As ridiculous as having Pat Boone replace Little Richard for fear that white girls would want to date and sleep with black men. Rock and Roll has been surrounded from the beginning by such ignorance, and it continues today.
I'm embarrassed for the researchers because they are typical brainless born agains, and as a born again Christian myself, I really resent the way these yahoos bring reproach upon Christianity and Christ's name with their fearmongering broadbrushed nonsense.
You wanna hear some good Christian rock? Listen to BLACK SABBATH. Every song is about how the devil will destroy your soul. THAT is a GOOD message. Is Creme Satanic? Is Journey Satanic? Is Foreigner Satanic? Is ELO Satanic? I could go on and on...
Do you realize the number of rock bands I could list off that have absolutely NO ties whatsoever with anything even remotely Satanic? It would require a 3 meg pdf file!!
But you're citing right-wing evangelical hysteria that indicts ALL Rock music. That is just plain ignorant. And people see it as ignorant -- you don't reach them with ignorance like this. This just brings reproach.
You're not going to reach thinking people. You're just going to come off as someone who lumps everyone into the boogie man "satanism" basket, and people are tired of hearing that because they KNOW its absolute bullcrap.
No offense --- but this is just nonsense. This is Bob Larson level pseudo-Christian hysteria. I say pseudo-Christian because contemporary Christianity of this ilk is NOT Christianity at all. It's just a vanguard of polarizing political social engineering misfits using "traditional family values" and "Christianity" to gain power.
Here's my take on Henry Makow's latest article on Rock and Roll. My question to Mr. Neff, is: Have you sat down and watched all 8 hours of this DVD? I grew up in the midst of this revolution in Rock, before MTV, and before all the blatant satanic junk that comes out. I agree with you that not all rock music is satanic (e.g. ELO, Boston, Heart,etc.) but today's "artists" as you will see from the DIRECT QUOTES from these people, is that they do feel a 'force' come over them, and most of them say it is the dark lord. went to many concerts in the 70's and 80's, and the majority of them were just good ole rock. You could not pay me enough today to go to one, as I have cared for too many tattooed, drunk, angry, satanic/goth/confused teenagers that try worship these people and their music. The mindset of the masses is the mindset of pain. This is what the Illuminati pig-demons want. Just listen to the words of Don Henley's "Inside Job", as it has 911/Pearl Harbor/USS Liberty/Gulf of Tonkin/Lusitania all over it!. This is what the gist of the video is: that in USA, today, now openly, people are allowed to worship satan and hate and have rituals that are contrary to the Ten Commandments, and the Mosaic law that this country was FOUNDED upon, and once blessed by God. But now that the cup of our abominations is almost full, the illuminati are preparing for the complete takeover of USA, which will start by getting rid of that "GD piece of paper" the Constitution. This will happen most likely within the next 6-12 months. This life is just a vapor, your soul is eternal. The only thing that will protect you in the time of trouble is God. I was sad and dissappointed when I saw this video, and have since boycotted the whole Illuminati controlled entrainment industry. I praise and worship the Lord each and every day, and I feel so much higher now than any drug ever got me, or any song ever felt! Please watch it and then be a critic. If you have already seen it, my apologies.
Peace and love in Christ,
yes I have seen it and several others that have been put out over the last 10 years and it's mostly a lot of hysteria and nonsense.
Sure...there are blatantly Satanic people in every walk of life. How can Christians be so stunned and shocked by this? We, of all people, should already KNOW this is the case.
But to indict an entire industry because of the overtly evil presentation of the few is the kind of stupidity that causes people in the world to look at the church, look at Christians as absolute idiots; we have it tough enough has it is just breaking through the basic sin nature to reach them.
Rock music has been scaring people for more than fifty years now, and before that it was Jazz, and before that Ragtime, and before that it was Zipher music, and before that... on and on, all contemporary forms of art and culture scare the willies out of non-thinking, irrational, supertitious people, especially the religious when they are stirred by workers of iniquity to keep them focused on such matters when the more weighter matters of God's law -- injustice, poverty, corruption -- go merrily along, in the pulpit and in the parlours of government power.
It's time for Christians to wake up, snap out of it and get their eyes set on the real problems and not these petty decoys.

Well done and right on, James. Makow has his moments of insight and moments of blindness. The Satanic Message of R and R was one of his blind ones.

Thanks for standing up for Rock and especially Black Sabbath! To me, they are Eternal Heroes. They were never "Satanic" in my eyes, either. Their song "After Forever" is the perfect proof. Another would be "Children of The Grave" or "Lord of This World". Though my personal favorite is the dark and visionary "Electric Funeral". I've always felt a big message of love in many of their songs, and I would say they even helped me become a better person(!) .Our fundamentalist (well-meaning, ...I hope) friends never read their lyrics, I'd presume. Hmmm, maybe you could put up one of their lyrics on Rense?

Rock on!

Indeed! - Black Sabbath lyrics are almot entirely words of serious warning about both the natural and supernatural evils and to keep oneself on the right side, and beware of the darkness. Why this is misunderstood by so many, I'll never understand. -- Neff

"War Pigs"

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of deaths construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait till their judgement day comes, yeah!
Now in darkness, world stops turning
As the war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of God has sturck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
All right now!
"Black Sabbath"
What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh no!
Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan's sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher
Oh no, no, please God help me!
Is it the end, my friend?
Satan's coming 'round the bend
people running 'cause they're scared
The people better go and beware
No, no, please, no!

I respect and understand why the authors of the videos say what they do. I agree, as will most 'normal' people that what many musicians espouse, and play is at least 'HORRID'!
But I would say, that it is an individual's understanding of 'good' and 'bad'- 'right' and 'wrong'- and NOT the song or artist that does the wrong.
This is the type of thinking - (that of the authors) - that promotes 'hate crime' legislation!
Which is essentially 'THOUGHT CRIME' legislation.
I well remember back in 1973- when I was writing my own 'Christian' message rock music - and my friend's church (Pentacostal-Apostolic) as well as many Baptist's, said to my friends who were members of my band, that my type of 'christian rock music' was the work of the 'devil' basically!
Of course, look at how things have changed!
Every type of 'music'- from country to heavy metal to rap is played IN THE CHURCH!!!!!!!
Hmmm? What has happened?
It just shows that these types of people are not grounded in a 'principle'! They do not really know who or what God is!- let alone how He and His universe actually operates!
These people operate from a religion of 'fear'- fear that they might be influenced to believe in evil, against their will!
'FEAR' that if they don't say 'praise Jesus' in every song, they are being sinners!
I believe in a God of LOVE! LOVE and FORGIVENESS!
I do not see, nor hear, much about this anymore from these types.
Their fear, has become judgement, and their judgement has become damnation!
Good riddance!!!
I respect their ignorance of that too!
But they have a long way to go to accuse those of us who write our type of songs as being somehow 'satanically influenced'!
I really don't care what they say!
Yes, The Beatles had read about Crowley, and others, but they ceratinly did not espouse his doings!
Harrison was certainly about Peace and Love, and Lennon was all about equality, and fairness in relations of government and the citizens, women and men etc.
So please, let's get on to tackling the real evil in this world, like the 'money masters' , and the evil in our government etc.!!!
We all can fight this together!!!!!!!!!
In Truth,

James, your response to the Makow article on "satanic" rock was choice. I especially enjoyed your critique of Black Sabbath. I've been a fan since 1970, and I always thought it funny that a band that sported crosses and lyrics with a pro-God message would be characterized as they were. I actually do have respect for some of Makow's ideas, but it's a touch humorous to to see the same hysteria existing today that was once--no, that still is, judging by the article--directed at Elvis and the Beatles. Makow's stumbling block is the same of every disconnected parent of a rebellious adolescent, whether the year is 1956 or 2006--the more condemned the music is, the more attractive it becomes. This isn't some grand plot of Illuminati malfeasance to manipulate society--it's capitalism catering to youngsters who are trying to establish identity and independence.
